Full of Beans 2

on October 17, 2015

Well, I am so delighted that I am almost speechless. In a mere 24 hours ….


I have to admit that I found myself a bit shy of the tall, red-haired man who performed a bit of a miracle so energetically. I came in and out of the house, met his lovely wife and youngest (part of his team), made them a cup of tea but not much else.

Now it will be up to me.

    They have given you a great start. I look forward to seeing what you have grown.

  8. May I humbly offer a teensy bit of advice. WATER is the key. Then fertilise with liquid fertiliser. Like seaweed or fish fertiliser. But water. LOVE IT!! Soon you will be eating your own greens – oh the joy! c

    Don’t forget your new gardening club friends. I’m sure they’ll be happy to give you some advice.
    Important thing is to talk to the plants every morning and let them know you love them.

    Seriously! I talk to my potted veggies and herbs all the time. They never grumble or answer back!

      Okay I will do as you say. This morning I went out to water the garden and yelled out “Hi vegetables!” It gave the peafowl and guinnea fowl a terrible fright!

  10. Nothing like the taste of fresh vegetables!That will convert all the naysayers. But of course there is weeding and watering but worth it for the results.I am curious about the process, watering etc especially with the heat. I live in the prairies and we have a short growing season, although lots of daylight hours in the spring and summer because of how far north we live.

  11. Looks fantastic! Growing food to eat is both incredibly rewarding and extremely challenging (competition in nature are diverse and seem to get there first). No shame at all in getting help.

    What fun! I look forward to hearing how your gardening adventures progress this year!

    The stout fencing looks very serviceable. I hope it protects your future abundant crop well.

  14. Judy says:

    This is all up to you and I love the excitement! Please share the growth – I’ll bet it will be fun to cook with fresh veggies. πŸ™‚

  15. Rhonda says:

    Wow…these look fantastic! I’ll say it again, what a GREAT idea for a business. You gonna do some canning of all your new veggies Jules?

  16. tersiaburger says:

    I feel inspired to grow some vegetables too….I hope the feeling will pass!

  17. Perhaps regular posts on the new veg garden might help you keep on top of it? πŸ˜‰ Quite splendid.

  18. I LOVE the design of your vegetable plots … not having to bend down on knees to tend to it!
    Suits me! πŸ™‚

  19. i look forward to seeing what grows and i don’t just mean the veggies:)

  20. Lynda says:

    Julie, you cannot believe how happy I am to see you branching out and realizing a dream for yourself. How wonderful! I just hope your fence about the garden is high enough to keep out the chooks!!! Their little feet make mincemeat of veggie gardens!

    Those are wonderful raised beds by the way. I have never seen them available here.

    • jmgoyder says:

      And there is even a water system underneath the beds. I am not quite sure how it all works but Dan is coming back to check it out a couple of times before he leaves me to it.

  21. I love those thingys for raised beds.
